Digital sports media company, TEAMtalk media, is famous not only for its dynamic digital sports sites, but now also for its ‘aerodynamic’ management and sales team. Sporting the latest in smooth hairdos, the TEAMtalkers are ready to spring into action.
First in the line-up is Ant Pascoe, who has been promoted to GM of the dynamic digital sports agency. Ant is a seasoned veteran of the sports journalism scene, having cut his teeth in the digital battlefields at Opta Sports Data in the UK, and later returning home to found his own media company, Sunday Media, before joining TEAMtalk media in 2010. His promotion to GM is a challenge the Ultimate Frisbee champ relishes!
Joining the team as the ‘newbie’ is Sphiwe Mahlangu. Having worked in a number of industries, including telecoms and public relations, Mahlangu is a driven and comprehensive thinker. With previous experience at Mxit and Vox Orion, his passion for working with people and his ‘keep it simple’ approach, make him a valuable addition to the team as a New Business Sales Consultant.
Rounding off the trio is senior rugby writer turned New Business Sales Consultant Dave Morris. Since returning from a stint in the UK in 2005 he turned his dream of writing for Planet Rugby into a reality. A sports veteran, Morris has had many highlights across his professional career, one of which was travelling around the country in 2009 as a journalist for Planet Rugby during the British and Irish Lions tour to SA.
So what do this dynamic trio have in common – apart from their aerodynamic hair-styles? They are passionate about what they do and delivering top results to both clients and sporting fans.
